A little Update and New Scarves!

I know I haven't been here for a while and that's because I've been super busy, which has left me with no time at all for blogging.  That's why I thought todays post could be a little bit of an update for you.

As you know, I have my own business, Love Hijab, and if any of you know or have a business yourself, then you'll be aware that April usually means the dreaded end of year accounts!!  I don't like maths and never will do.  It was definitely NOT one of my most favourite subjects at school and I used to hate it so so much.  I would look forward to the sound of the bell right before the lesson even started, so you can imagine the terrible, terrible pain I'm going through right now, having to deal with getting all my receipts and everything all in order.

But having said that, all is good elsewhere.  So big smiles all around.  I have added lots of new scarves to Love Hijab and I think I can say I have the full range of plain maxi scarves too.  I have added every single colour there is from peach to purple and pink to red and blues and greys and greens and the list goes on.

To see the full range you might as well click here, because when you see the colours, you're going to love them.  All the scarves are oversized which means you have enough fabric to play around with and for anyone who doesn't wear a scarf as a head covering then you'll be happy to know that they are perfect as sarongs too!

Here is a sneak peak at just some of the new prints and colours I've added but to see all the new arrivals, just click me.

Knock, Knock, Who's There?

So, you might think that this post is a little unusual, and it is.  That's because it's mostly, well actually, all about doors!  Now, who would have thought I would be writing about doors!?  Nope, I didn't think you did and to be quite honest with you, I never thought I would be either.

But, there's just something about Pinterest that kind of draws you in and you get lost.  And by the looks of things I definitely got lost in doors!  And when you take a look you'll be just as mesmerised as I was.

These are not just any doors because they all tell a very interesting story.  One thing's for sure, they're not boring at all.  I love how they are all painted in some amazing colours, from brights to more muted colours.

Some are much older and a lot worse for wear than others.  They really have taken a good beating.  They're dirty, falling apart and half the paint's gone too.  But that's the beauty of it all.

Others are far more intricate, with lots of carefully thought out detail and beautiful craftsmanship to match.  Each one is decorated perfectly.  Then there are those that are a lot more specific, with straight lines and clean shapes.  And with nothing out of place.

Behind each door there's an intriguing story I'm curious to know.

Top 10 Black Jackets (nearly black)

I think this is the time of year when you need to add a jacket to your wardrobe because although it's starting to get slightly warmer, it's not quite hot yet that you can venture out without something to cover up.  A jacket is great because it's lightweight and now that there are so many different styles and prints, they really can bring an outfit together.

Now, you may have noticed the title, Top 10 Black Jackets.  Let me highlight the word BLACK.  Yup, it's all about black again.  I can't get enough of black, I'm sorry.  It's my go to colour, it can be worn with anything and it's very slimming too.  I'm not ashamed to admit I wear black everyday, but I also like to inject a bit of colour into my outfit by wearing printed scarves, a coloured cardigan/kimono or jewellery to bring the whole look together.  Which is why you'll also see 'nearly black' in the title too.

If you like black as much as I do then you'll know that sometimes it can be hard to let go of your comfort zone.  You get used to it and wearing brighter colours makes you feel as though you stick out like a sore thumb.  So I've picked out 10 jackets which have some element of black in them, be it a pattern, or a block print.  I couldn't help myself so I have also included an all black jacket, with a difference.  It's all in the detail and if you scroll down, you'll see.

Sisterhood Of The World Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Jadirah from the Jasmine Catches Butterflies blog and thought it would be a good idea to do this tag.  It's such a nice feeling to know that someone I've met on twitter from half way across the world would think of me.  So thank you Jadirah for the tag :)

Top 15 Dresses For Spring

Spring is finally here and that means the sun's going to be out again! My favourite time of the year is definitely spring/summer when the sun's shining and it just feels so much better than the cold, dull dark days of winter.  The bright sunshine makes me feel happy, fresh and makes me want to go for long walks.

But if you're in the UK you'll totally understand me when I say our weather is so unpredictable!!!  For us, the arrival of spring doesn't always mean warmer weather.  Even in summer, you're likely to get all the seasons in one day.  The sun may be out but the rain soon follows.

What actually happened was spring came and along with it winter decided to pay us another visit too!  Although the sun was shining, you won't believe it, but it was also snowing and we got plenty of rain and hail stones too.  It was freezing cold, and so, it wasn't time to ditch the winter woollies just yet, I guess.  But that doesn't mean we can't start shopping for spring can we?

So let's get into the spirit of spring with my top 15 dresses for spring.
